The Centre for Health Protection today said it is investigating nine additional COVID-19 cases, taking the number of confirmed cases in Hong Kong to 5,345.


The centre’s Communicable Disease Branch Head Dr Chuang Shuk-kwan told a press briefing this afternoon that among the new cases, one is locally transmitted with an unknown source of infection, two are epidemiologically linked with a local case, while the other six are imported.


The case with an unknown source involves a 36-year-old man who lives in Yan Wo Yuet Building, Wan Chai. He felt unwell on October 30 and consulted a private doctor at Hong Kong Sanatorium & Hospital on November 1.


The other two local cases are linked to the staycation cluster in Silvermine Bay, which so far involves five patients. Two people in the cluster have tested preliminary positive.


The imported cases are from Indonesia, the Philippines, US and UK.
